Hanniver Toll, Witch Hunter of the Order of Azyr

The Order of Azyr is an organisation comprised of Witch Hunters, Vampire Hunters, and other agents dedicated to scouring the Free Cities and kingdoms of Sigmar's empire of the corruption of Chaos and Death. In their mission to rid the Realms of corruption, they are given free rein with none save Sigmar himself holding authority over them. Even those in the highest offices of the Cities of Sigmar know well to fear the Order, for any signs of corruption will be purged with fire, blade, or execution.[8a][9a]

Relations

Agents of the Order work closely with other elements of the Devoted of Sigmar and trusted lords of the Free Cities.[8a][9a] The Order's members will often employ extensive networks of contacts and allies, who hail from countless backgrounds and walks of life, to complete their missions.[10b]

Due to sharing a similar purpose, Witch Hunters of the Order and Lord-Veritants of the Stormhosts will often work together to rid the taint of Chaos from the Cities of Sigmar. Whether the Lord-Veritant will defer to their mortal counterparts, or directly take charge, more often depends on the personality of the Stormcast than actual protocol.[2b]

Agents of the Order will occasionally employ adventurers. Often sending them to search for Realmgates.[10b]

Heraldry

Some members of the Order have been known to use a symbol that combines the imagery of both a comet and a hammer, both potent symbols of the God-King of Azyr.[2a]

Membership

The Order of Azyr answers to none save the authority of the God-King himself, though politicking exists within the internal hierarchy of the Order. The Agents of the Order, especially its Witch Hunters, are renowned and feared for being ruthless, pragmatic dispensers of Sigmar's justice. Despite this reputation, many within the Order hold themselves to high moral and ethical standards.[8a][10b]

Quotes

Every story you’ve heard is true. Every one. Where we see perfidy, the Order excises it with sword and flame. Those that would eat away at the heart of this great civilisation will die screaming. Those that choose to aid such schemes, or who avert their gaze through cowardice or disloyalty will meet a fate no kinder. I tell you this so you harbour no illusions as to the lengths I will go to protect this city – if you cross me, you are ash and memories, and even those I will seek to eradicate. Do you understand?

- Hanniver Toll to Armand Callis.[1a]
